The Duchess of Cambridge has proved that she can go from hiking in jeans and boots to attending a black-tie affair with no problems at all. Kate Middleton rocked an elegant cream-colored gown paired with sparkly stilettos at a private dinner in London hosted by the Thirty Club on Tuesday night.

She looked perfectly suited to the outdoor event wearing jeans, boots, and a vest. What can't she do?
In other royals news, the Queen of Soul will be getting a big honor soon. Aretha Franklin will be inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in a ceremony this August. Franklin's 1972 album, Amazing Grace, is one of the best selling gospel records of all time and has sold over 2 million copies.
In an interview on Ellen, Johnny Depp revealed how he developed some of his most memorable characters. Apparently his version of Willy Wonka was inspired by what he imagined George (we're assuming he meant W.) Bush would be like "incredibly stoned." Edward Scissorhands, meanwhile, was inspired by Depp's puppy.
